Quote Me - S4 E11 James Matthew Wilson

  It’s a joy to spend time in this episode with James Matthew Wilson, poet and director of the MFA program in creative writing at the University of Saint Thomas , the only MFA program in the world rooted firmly in the Catholic intellectual and literary tradition.   His quote comes from Aristotle’s The Metaphysics , opening of Book I:    “All men by nature desire to know. An indication of this is the delight we take in our senses; for even apart from their usefulness they are loved for themselves; and above all others the sense of sight. For not only with a view to action, but even when we are not going to do anything, we prefer seeing (one might say) to everything else. The reason is that this, most of all the senses, makes us know and brings light to many differences between things.”   Here’s a quick list of the books Dr. Wilson recommends starting with, as you ask yourself what it means to stare into the light (affiliate links):   Plato, The Symposium Plato, Meno Aristotle, The Meta

Leah lives in Central Minnesota with her husband, Josh, and seven children.    Her quote comes from Edmund Burke (we think; that attribution is contested), and was painted on the wall of her high school psychology classroom:   “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”    A couple other quotes we discuss in this episode are from St. Teresa of Calcutta:   “I do not pray for success; I ask for faithfulness.”   “We have the obligation to speak the truth but we don’t have to convince anyone.”    and St. Augustine:   “T he truth is like a lion. You don't have to defend it. Let it loose. It will defend itself.” Leah also mentioned the film, The Business of Birth Control .   Connect with
